Did Beyoncé Photoshop Her Thighs?
Beyoncé has come under fire for a photo taken as she was enjoying a day on the golf course.
What's so controversial about the vacation picture? It's her thigh gap! That's right, the small gap between Beyoncé's thighs. And it is setting the internet on fire. Fans are accusing Beyoncé of photoshopping her thighs to make them look slimmer. The evidence? Her thighs don't even touch.
On INSIDE EDITION's Facebook page, Elena wrote: “Omg! So obvious! Her legs look deformed!"
Shannon wrote: “She doesn't need to do that, she's beautiful without Photoshop.”
Many believe she used something called the “clone stamp tool” in Photoshop to get the desired effect. That's the same tool that Target used on a teenage swimwear model last month. The chain store later apologized.
Dr. Matthew Schulman told INSIDE EDITION, "I think they have a responsibility to portray images that are realistic."
Schulman said this sort of photoshopping sends the wrong message. On websites frequented by teenagers with eating disorders, pictures of thigh gaps are actually posted as something to aspire to.
"This whole notion of a thigh gap is really popular right now. But it's not something that you can just create. You either have it or you don't," explained Schulman.
